Which Began in 2014 To INSPIRE
Now it includes TO ENCOURAGE which has become the Ointment
that ENCOURAGES ME
Are your Emotions on a rollercoaster? Yesterday, was "Fabulous" and you took on the day with Clarity, with Focus, no matter the challenge, no mountain was to high to climb. You were a CHAMPION and ruled the day.
Today, you are tired of being tired, of doing this or doing that? You feel empty and unfulfilled.
I would say, that EMOTIONS are a questionable companion? I would even add, that they cannot be trusted. I think having an outline (written down goals / aspirations) of where you're desiring to go (with room for revisions, of course) is necessary.
NECESSARY, for when you're climbing to new heights, feeling the anticipation of going higher to newer ground, to reaching new milestones on your journey. Having the outline (written down), can be trusted, because it can keep your eyes on the prize, to keep your focus on the next destination in sight, to celebrate with your positive, empowering emotions and the power to put your negative emotions in check, when they, not if, but when they do, to put them on notice to line up and to remain on the program.
We are the riding the horse and taking control of the reigns. . when Negative, Burdensome, Weighted emotions come knocking, we have to shut the negativity down.
They have been the "rave" and many have shared that they benefit greatly from them. You could start your day and or close our your day with a few lines or whatever your soul desires to put to paper. . .those things that you are grateful for.
Often times, we are caught in the day's dilemmas, or the "To Do" lists, or surrounded in our travels by negative comments or conversation, including delivery of a bundle of world news, which all makes it very easy, to become weighted, not "appreciating the forest, because we are so focused on the trees".
New York Times Best Selling Author, T.D. Jakes, shared on one of his online teachings that "You would be surprised how many folks would be happy to have your life, as it is right now". Meaning to me, that there are so many wonderful things to be grateful for, to recognize the blessing in what we have in our life right now, and that takes, stopping and appreciating "what we can be grateful for". The Gratitude Journal puts the process in our life, by doing it daily, it becomes a habit, a woven part of our journey.
MAIL A GREETING CARD or SEND SOMEONE AN UNEXPECTED GIFT:
This process takes us out of our "ME" world, it puts us in the position of reflecting and appreciating someone else. That brings positive energy into our lives, the small act, of reaching out to someone else.
Have you ever received an unexpected anything or received a Greeting Card, with words expressed, that "hit a nerve", it made you in that moment, recognize what you mean to someone else. That is the kind of moments that are cherished for a lifetime by anyone who has experienced this moment.
Reaching out to someone who comes to mind: I find this to be a huge encourager, because you are focused on making someone's day a little brighter. On our "RELATIONSHIP AVENUE" page, there is a Convenient Online System, where you can select or create a Greeting Card and the Company will Mail the Card for you.
. . the feeling of someone going to their mailbox and amongst the usual stuff of monthly bills, advertisements, you see a Printed Greeting Card or a Gift that was UNEXPECTED, that is sending out a flow of Positivity, of Appreciation, using the Power of Words, which always flows back.
SCHEDULE A VISIT, CREATE AN EVENT with FAMILY /FRIENDS:
The theme is "SIT and CHAT", one on one, or a group, not, a sit and you do your social media, while I do mine. This will be an "Eye to Eye", a listen to, a space to just share good things, or memories of times shared. A time to Listen and in those moments, maybe you will be used to share a word of encouragement or to pass along a little joy. Maybe you'll be the one encouraged. The power of gathering together and connecting with like hearted folks, who share similar pursuits of living fulfilled is powerful to the journey!
This is a biggie, you never realize how "fulfilling" your own life can be until you take on a cause. To be apart of supporting a cause. To be apart of the "Change" you want to see in your community, to see in the world. There are a number of wonderful organizations, with great missions and really when you help someone else our problems or challenges, really are minimized. Have you ever heard the statement, "I use to complain about having no shoes, until, I met the man with no feet"
When your eyes, your focus shifts from the "I", the "ME" factor, from the I don't have. . or I am not. ., to instead the community around you, it brings on a different perception of what you can truly be "Grateful For", in many ways, it prioritizes what is important to our journey.
"Volunteering" helps us to see closer the lives of people like you and me, who are surrounded by circumstances of the moment for numerous reasons and when you assist in a climb upward or onward, it is very powerful and it brings a barrel of Positivity.
